About TreasuryIslands

TreasuryIslands is a children’s literature blog, updated weekly sporadically. I aim for a couple of posts a week.

It’s written by a recent literature graduate who took a module childrens’ literature and became obsessed. As a result it’s a vaguely academic, pop-cultury mish-mash of reviews, histories, opinions and looks at classics of the genre.

I love having people contribute to TreasuryIslands! I’m also usually happy to contribute to other blogs; please contact me using the email address above for more about either.

Review policy

I would love to be able to review every book that I get a request for, but unfortunately I just don’t have the time. Your book deserves a good quality, thoughtful review, and I’d rather not offer a review at all than offer a poor quality one.

I am particularly interested in LGBTQ books for children of all ages, books in translation and multicultural books.

I do not work with self-published authors.

I try to post reviews within four weeks of receipt of the book.

I do not do giveaways.

A note on links and references

Links are an easy way to provide further information. I’ll try to use trustworthy links, but wikipedia will slip in now and again.

  2. Hi there, spotted this on Twitter where I’m posting on Joan Aiken, and on a WordPress Blog – do come and visit, and re-blog if you like? She was my Mum, and I’m still spreading the word and grateful for your support here!
